Safety is a constant priority at HCL.
Crossrail expect it’s contractors to have a high standard of safety devices on their vehicles, this is why Hydro Cleansing have invested heavily in the best safety equipment available.
- 360 degree cameras

Another key element in being Crossrail complaint is cycle safety. This is where Hydro Cleansing takes the standards to the next level.

Part of the development of Terminator, our newest, largest and most powerful vacuum tanker; involved creating a new warning sign for the back of our HGVs. It emphasises the presence of our fleet and sounds a warning as the trucks manoeuvre. We are continually striving raise the bar for cycle safety within the Industrial and Environmental wet waste market sector!
From the time that Crossrail required compliance, Hydro Cleansing have not only complied with but exceeded the standards our commitment to those more vulnerable road users.
We’ve provided consistent and reliable support for their construction work and manage the wet waste disposal for much of Crossrail’s works.
HYDRO CLEANSING stand shoulder to shoulder with Crossrail in terms of upholding safety standards within the industry.
In relation to our recent involvement with the London Fit for Cycling Mayoral Hustings and as part of the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, Samsung Bike Week 2012, Steve Hoad of Hydro Cleansing, a member of the FTA, Freight Transport Association, is volunteering his time alongside Megatron’s on Saturday 23rd June from 10am-3pm at North End, Croydon.
HGV Awareness Training for cyclists, in association with the Metropolitan Police task force, will be on hand throughout the day to spread awareness and educate those who are keen to learn more about making a switch to cycling for their everyday journeys. Security tagging of bikes and other attractions will also be on hand on the day.
Working together to both inform drivers and cyclists, our belief is that both can work together in harmony, especially on the roads in and around the capital. Our aim is to spread Hydro Cleansing’s knowledge and understanding on how cycling can easily become part of everyday life and to ensure the safety of all road users.
Our fleet of HGV’s are all Crossrail Cycle Compliant and in line with the Mayor of London’s Cycle Action Plan have been fitted with: Fresnei lenses, side scan equipment, under run guards, warning signs for cyclists/pedestrians and Brigade reversing alarms which all ensure cyclist safety.
